Synopsis

Introduction to the design, analysis, and practical manufacture of electromechanical systems, incorporating DC and AC electrical circuit theory, simple semiconductor and amplifying components, transformers, and sensors and actuators. Mathematics of electromechanical systems is provided, including Laplace transforms and complex algebra. Computational and assignment work (via practicals) to be integrated to give student complete understanding of specific examples using modern microelectronic components, sensors, and actuators.

Outcomes

Students are to gain the ability to model elementary electro-mechanical systems, incorporating mechanical and electrical energy exchange and interaction, with additional instruction on common applied mathematical methods used in electromechanical system analysis, including Laplace transforms and complex algebra. Tutorial work will provide the student a reinforced understanding of electromechanics.
